Present Tense - Questions

General questions

To transform any sentence into a question you can simply put the word czy on the beginning of the sentence and make the stress go up at the end of the sentence.


Czytam książkę. – Czy czytam książkę?

I’m reading a book. – Am I reading a book?


Piszesz artykuł. – Czy piszesz artykuł?

You’re writing an article. – Are you writing an article?

You can also skip the word czy and use the same affirmative sentence to pose a question. Just remember to make the stress go up at the end of the sentence, so that it sounds like question.


Czytasz książkę. – Czytasz książkę?

You are reading a book. – Are you reading a book?

Precise questions

If you want to make a detailed question about something with the usage of an interrogative words, then instead of czy, simply use the interrogative word and put stress on it.


Co robisz? - What are you doing?

Gdzie idziesz? - Where are you going?

Jak długo pracujesz dzisiaj? - How long do you work today?

Kto to jest? - Who is this?

Dlaczego tak głośno mówisz? - Why are you talking so loudly?
